Hewlett-Packard's former CEO reveals in her new memoir that she authorized the now-infamous investigation of boardroom leaks before Mark Hurd replaced her, according to the New York Times.

Carly Fiorina's book wasn't planned to come out just as the investigation and ensuing scandal was being examined by Congress (if only publishers could be that quick). It's a mixed blessing for Fiorina — after California indicted ex-chair Patricia Dunn and four other people involved in the investigation yesterday, her book should sell better than expected when it comes out Tuesday.

But it also means Carly's just given a book full of public testimony that will entangle her in this whole mess. Looks like someone could get roped into a few more hours on the witness stand.
